Step 2: Use kitchen scissors, or a knife with cutting board to cut the brussel sprouts in half. They should be soft enough to cut at this point.

While this step is optional, and I did leave a few whole, the ones that were cut in half tasted so much better. This allows you to get really yummy crispy texture on the edges which makes all the difference.
